Amish Naturals Introduces High-Fiber Chewy Granola Bar Combining Natural, Premium Ingredients with Great Taste and Flavors
Launch Extends Natural Food Company’s Product Offerings into $1.8 Billion Snack Food Category
With a growing number of active consumers looking to add more fiber to their diets without sacrificing time, quality or taste, Amish Naturals, Inc. (OTCBB:AMNT), a natural food products company, has launched a snack line including four varieties of 100 percent all-natural Chewy Granola Bars, available nationwide next month at grocery stores, including two fiber-rich varieties.
“Our entry into the $1.8 billion snack bar market is an inherent extension of the Amish Naturals’ Hi-Fiber Initiative and our mission to provide natural, premium food products that not only taste great, but are truly good for you,” said President and CEO of Amish Naturals, David Skinner, Sr.
Available in the cereal aisle, the new line of granola bars will feature four tasty flavor combinations including:
Dark Chocolate (Five 1.4 oz bars per carton; each bar contains 2 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein)
Peanut Butter (Five 1.4 oz bars per carton; each bar contains 3 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein)
Fiber-Rich Peanut Butter (Five 1.4 oz bars per carton; each bar contains 7 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein)
Fiber-Rich Fruit and Nut (Five 1.4 oz bars per carton; each bar contains 7 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein)
All Amish Naturals’ Chewy Granola Bars contain no artificial ingredients, no high-fructose corn syrup, no trans fats, no hydrogenated vegetable oils and no genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
“When choosing the ingredients for our Chewy Granola Bars, we were careful to choose ingredients that both reflect the wholesomeness and purity of the Amish people and their culinary traditions as well as ensure taste and flavor remained paramount,” said Stacey DeHass, executive chef for Amish Naturals. “We combined a blend of the finest nuts, grains and seeds, that are toasted and naturally sweetened, that would meet consumers’ demand for healthier snack alternatives, yet still meet the need for indulgence.”
“We unveiled samples of Amish Naturals’ Granola Bars at Expo West just a few weeks ago. The reactions we received were incredible.” said Troy Treangen, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Amish Naturals. “We will start selling our granola items to distributors and customers starting this week. Consumers will find our granola products on store shelves in approximately 8-12 weeks at a price in line with other bars on the market.”
